To provide the best research computing support that we can, ARCC offers three core services, see below to find out more about each core service:
High Performance Computing: ARCC maintains an HPC cluster for research computing, named Teton. Teton allows researchers to perform computation-intensive analysis on large datasets. Using Teton, researchers have control over their data, projects, and collaborators.
All UW researchers can have an account on Teton and requests for accounts can be completed online. Faculty are encouraged to seek funding to add capacity to this system, but this is not a prerequisite for its use. The research office provides annual funding to add capacity and replace any outdated hardware.
Research Data Storage: Another service offered is two research storage system called the petaLibraryand Pathfinder
ARCC also offers various tools for facilitating the storage and transfer of data.
End-User Support: Consultation and training services are another core ARCC service. This service is for all researchers at UWyo whether they use the HPC system, the Research Data Storage System, or if they have any other Research Computing topics they would like to be covered.
Our goal is to support researchers in any way we can, including one-on-one consultation, scheduled in-person and online training so that researchers may perform their work with the most support that ARCC can provide.
Additional Services: ARCC is also happy to provide assistance with Proposal Development and Linux Desktop Support.
If you wish to state how you intend to use ARCC resources in a grant proposal, we have provided a couple of documents that might be helpful in your proposal development. Find them on the ARCC website.
